Students with Disabilities

There is a range of additional support available for students with a disability who are studying a Higher Education courses.

Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) are grants to help with the extra costs a student may face because of a disability. Conditions covered include long-term illnesses, mental health conditions or specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia.

Please note that the college can only offer limited additional learning support to HE students who have not applied for DSA.  However reasonable adjustments to teaching and learning and in some instances assessment can be made for all students with a recent needs assessment.

For application guidance and additional information please call 0161 631 5000 and ask to speak to a member of the Learning Support team.
